Put the city on lockdown.
Call out the national guard.
The people are in an uproar.
Hoist the cops on their own petard!
This war will never be over.
There’s too many of us to kill.
And the battle rages on,
so many graves yet to fill.
Don’t get tired, get mad.
You can’t bargain with the devil,
for he has naught to lose
and the killing field’s not level.
You’re on your own with this one,
just as you’ve always been.
They shoot you in the back,
and on you, their crime they pin.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew Saturday in a St. Louis suburb where police and protesters have clashed in the week since a black teenager was shot to death by a white police officer.
State of emergency? Damn straight! Fuck IT Up!!!
